Atlanta,GAFlu season is just about over, which, unfortunately, means allergy season is here. As the weather warms up, we’ll also soon have to start dealing with the medical conditions that plague us during the summer, which includes sunburns, dehydration and sports injuries.

For this, it’s fitting that May is National Urgent Care Awareness Month, seeing as it helps educate Americans about the benefits of urgent care. During the summer, people like to travel. If your family’s traveling and somebody gets sick or injured, you’re not going to be able to see your primary care physician. Instead of going to the emergency room, urgent care centers provide your family with a much more convenient option for healthcare.

What is Beneficial About Urgent Care?

Urgent Care centers like American Family Care – Buckhead in Atlanta, GA perfectly bridge the gap between the doctor’s office and the emergency room. We offer the same walk-in accessibility of the ER, just minus the wait time and lofty ER co-pays. And like your primary care physician’s office, we maintain the same family-friendly, low-stress atmosphere, but you won’t have to schedule an appointment and wait weeks before seeing a doctor.

At American Family Care – Buckhead, we accept patients on a walk-in basis 7 days a week. Because of our commitment to providing the Atlanta, GA community with the highest-quality medical care, we’ve become the go-to destination for urgent care and walk-in medical services to Buckhead and downtown Atlanta residents.
